Went to this hospital because it was the closest to our house. I reason we were there was not life threatening, but did need to seek medical attention. We checked in, and were told to wait in the waiting room. As we sat there waiting for my husbands name to be called, I looked around and was just amazed by how many people had hospital blankets wrapped around them, people sleeping, people with the thing they put in your arm, so they can give you IV or what ever. the longer we sat there, the more people were just flowing in to the Emergency Room. When were finally called back, they asked a few questions and were sending us back out to the waiting room until a room was available. i asked how long the wait was and she said about 6 hours, but it could be sooner or later. So, we left. I told here we would not be staying.
We drove to St. Luke's Hospital. There was no wait, we were in a room within 6 minutes. The doctor was in shortly after and the x ray was taken and he was discharged shortly after that.
I will never return to this hospital. When it was St. Anthony's, it was fine. Not wonderful, but at least when you went there for an emergency you didn't have to wait for hours to be seen. I thought when Mercy took it over it would be improved, that the care level would increase. This was 100% incorrect. It went in a completely different direction. If I have an need for an Emergency room visit. I will not be taken to this hospital. I will NEVER recommend this hospital to anyone.
